So many apps insist on being installed to Internal Storage that I have no room left.

What I need is a utility akin to Tab Manager which will identify the Internal Storage apps and let me select and move them to SD.

Not a bad idea IMO, could even be done in opie-sh smile.gif

Some light-weight bash scripting should do the trick:

CODE
# Untested!
for file in `cat /usr/lib/ipkg/info/$appname.list`
do
  ! test -d "`dirname "$file"`" && mkdir -p  "`dirname "$file"`"
  mv $file /media/sd/$file
done


After that you'd need to take care to copy ipkg's meta data about the package to SD and edit all pathes in $appname.list to match the new path.
